i'm a big animal lover, so seeing that photo makes me so sad. =*(

i know, it's so depressing to see animals treated so poorly, even though i know they're destined for the markets or a restaurant.

i'm glad i didn't post a picture of the kitties and puppies at the pet store stall in HCMC. there were 4-5 animals stuffed into a small soiled cage each, and several of the animals had sores and an overall unhealthy look.

however, i'm happy to report that the pet cats and dogs that i did see in shops seemed to be well-fed and happy, although starved for the type of attention that my cats are more accustomed to receiving.

different cultures, different attitudes towards pets, i guess.
